barryd It could be possible they took the controller out and just left the panel. Easy to rip out a controller but not so easy to remove a panel.

Mrplodd I would be very surprised if someone has fitted a panel to your MH and NOT wired it in!

Just because you cannot see any cables doesn’t mean they are not there somewhere.
Have you asked the previous owner, or the dealer you purchased it from??

KeithChesterfield Always remember that with a good size Solar panel, refillable gas system, own facilities and decent batteries the World is your lobster.

raynipper Often run down into the fridge cavity and connected via a regulator to the heavy 12v cables there.

EJB It should be wired directly to a charge controller then from there to your leisure battery and possibly your vehicle battery as well?

There are normally no other controls as it charges as and when the sun shines....alongside the vehicle alternator, when travelling, and a battery charger when on electric Hook Up.

If no wires through the roof it isn't connected??
